from a totally unrelated to covid-19 thing (back problem), so I am not doing much of anything, including cleaning and straightening up my place.

But I have decided that the occasional objects remaining out of place are now part of an obstacle course for my indoor exercise needs!

Parts we need for our car transmission sent from US. Probably take longer than the virus itself. *

However, I have two extreme privileges in this quarantine

1. I view paradise out my window
2. Even better I’m quarantined with Mr Lake who I believe is the funniest person on earth.
So hearty laughter every day. Beautiful weather and view to boot.

*who would think that a Kia is not always a Kia. That Kias assembled in Mexico have different parts than Kias assembled in Korea.

When you get a chance, pass on something funny your hubby says for us who may be in a laughter void

He paused and said: How can I tell?

The nurse looked open eyed at me while I burst out laughing.

finish going through 50 years of stuff. I'm pretty much packed and hope my POD will still be delivered April 15. I'd planned to move from my beloved 1858, 4800 sq. ft. Victorian to a 2 bedroom apartment, 500 miles away. Who knows if that can happen.

It worked really well and greatly cut down the time making the cheese.
